What Trueform says for Southampton vs Bournemouth
Southampton can now focus solely on their Premier League survival bid after bowing out of the FA Cup and that can help them to gain a much-needed win over Bournemouth.
The Saints predictably found Chelsea too strong in their Wembley semi-final and are deep in relegation trouble.
However, their recent top-flight exploits have included some promising signs, so we’re taking 7/5 for a home win and over 2.5 goals in our Southampton vs Bournemouth betting predictions.
A Look At Southampton’s Betting Odds
Goals from Olivier Giroud and Alvaro Morata ended Southampton’s FA Cup dreams, but they didn’t lack for effort at the national stadium.
The same could be said of a 0-0 draw at Leicester in their last league match, while earlier 3-2 losses to Chelsea and Arsenal in this competition also offered glimpses of hope.
Holland international Wesley Hoedt said: “We have to keep going and look forward to four massive games for us. There’s still a chance to stay up and we have to fight for it.
“If I don’t believe it, it’s better to stop directly, but that’s not true. We just have to fight for it and there’s still 12 points to play for. We are professionals.”
A Look At Bournemouth’s Betting Odds
Bournemouth will be more than content with a mid-table berth after being in the bottom three for much of the season.
Eddie Howe’s side climbed out of trouble thanks to a good run of form after Christmas, losing just two of 14 top-flight fixtures.
However, they are now coming off a couple of convincing defeats against Liverpool and Manchester United.
While there is no disgrace in losing to such elite-level opponents, the Cherries could be forgiven for starting to think about their summer holidays after chasing shadows in those matches.
On the plus side, the visitors had previously netted in 10 straight games, so 11/5 for a home win and both teams to score is worth adding to our Southampton vs Bournemouth betting tips.
